I have an order of Mountain Rose Potatoes scheduled to ship in April. I am in the process of planning where to place the potatoes once they arrive. They will be growing in a raised bed, which can either be placed in full sun, partial sun or on my patio, which will receive shade with afternoon sun. I live in Zone 9 where the summer temperatures can easily rise to 95-100...given this information, where would you believe the best place to place the container would be?
